Search within this database
Proto-Dravidian : *aḍái ~ *aḍí
Meaning : to compact, gather together; lump, clot
Proto-South Dravidian: *aḍai- ~ *aḍi-
Proto-Telugu : *aḍar- ~ *aḍi-
Proto-Gondi-Kui : *aḍar
Proto-North Dravidian : *aṛg-
Notes : Monosyllabic forms are also found but are in the minority and may be secondary. PNDR *aṛg- "spleen" can go back to *aḍV́K- and fits in rather well phonetically; as for the shift in meaning, it is commonly observed in South Dravidian: cf. Tam. kaṭṭi "clod, lump, enlarged spleen", Kod. gëṇḍe "spleen", etc. // Present in 4/6 branches.
